Johannesburg - A woman died and three others were seriously injured in a multiple vehicle crash on the N12 in Johannesburg on Thursday afternoon, Johannesburg emergency services said.

Spokesperson Niel Rooi said paramedics arrived around 16:00 and found that one motorist from the four cars had died.

The injured were stabilised and taken to the Baragwanath hospital for further treatment.

Seven other vehicles crashed 200m from the first accident, said Rooi.

However, no one was injured. Both accidents caused a major backlog as the highway had to be closed for cleanup operations, he said.
